1977 Quinta do CachÃ£o
: Nosing lightly of red fruit, and also of sugar. Brown sugar, said somebody. A hint of green. A little heat in the mouth, with lengthâ€”though the later taste predominantly sticky. 6-5, or thereabouts.
Later in the evening had acquired a pleasant mint smell.
JL: â€œmore unfocussed than the Niepoort
Very satisfactory quaffing port. Nothing remarkable or great, but ﬁne drinking. My second experience of CachÃ£o, the other (1970
) being similar. Will buy if cheap. Please donâ€™t bid against me.
Question: do CachÃ£o and Messias have grapes in common, or just the viniﬁcation facilities?
Question: how is â€œCachÃ£oâ€ correctly pronounced?
